Online firmware upgrade to Organiser R3A06 now available for the P900

The 2nd online upgrade for the P900 is now available from Sony Ericsson. They haven't published the Release notes yet, but one very welcomed bug-fix seems to be the one causing the phone to reboot during the installation of some larger applications.

[NOTE: Some of you who have a P900 that is locked to a network may not be able to use the online upgrade service at this point]

The higher number revision is only relevant to certain models.

Mine is a stock, vanilla, unlocked, not-branded-by-any-network model with CDA 162003/5 (production CDA, I believe) and the online update still says latest organiser is R2B02.

Hmm, yes that may be, seeing as the Release notes for the upgrade isn't published yet either... Anyway, my CDA is 162003/1 and the upgrade from Organiser version R2B02 to R3A06 went smoothly. It also shows R3A06 as the latest version when I enter my CDA manually.

From the link in the first post. I guess the upgrade service just isn't updated for your CDA version yet...

Yes, if I put CDA 162003/1 I get the new version, if I put my CDA version 162003/3 I get R2B02, what happen if I install it anyway ?

You can't fool the upgrade program by entering the wrong CDA version I'm afraid, it will automatically detect your correct CDA version anyway. I guess you just have to be a little patient, and check back later...

I have CDA162003/8 and was told R2B02 was the latest which I already had of course, but, for testing sake since a lot were told this yet after the upgrade they got the latest.

No update, after the upgrade still got the same thing. Its either I have no luck, or it really isnt there yet for this CDA.

CDA162003/8

Anyone please help me to answer the following:

1. What is the purpose of upgrading the software?
2. How do I unlock the Operator Network so that I can upgrade?
3. After Master Reset, why can't I restore the original software from the Application CD supplied?
4. How do I check my IMEI from the P900?
5. How do I check the production months or year?
6.Why can't I upgrade my P900?

Thanks
